The Queue: Live, from Hollywood, it's the Fox Van Allen show

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. The stunningly handsome Fox Van Allen will be your host today.

I'm sure some of you are already familiar with my travels, but I've been in California since Tuesday. The last few days, I've been checking in at the Venice Beach offices of Tecca (my new day job), and yesterday afternoon, I went down to Irvine to get lunch with Mike Sacco.

Of course, no trip to southern California would ever be complete without a trip to The Price is Right. I met up with actress Michele Morrow in Hollywood, and after a few mimosas, an afternoon of pricing games, and a cocktail at lunch, we went back and recorded a brief vlog. (What a terrible word that is. Vlog.) Enjoy.

Oh, wait -- what's that? I have to answer your questions today, too? What nonsense is this? I'm supposed to be vacationing.

Darren asked:

Do you think Blizzard will take a few minutes while working on Mists and reduce the level requirement for the Outland cooking and fishing dailies? Its kinda dumb that they arent available until you character is already in Northrend.

Insider Trader: Faction recipes for alchemists


Insider Trader is your inside line on making, selling, buying and using player-made products.

Last week, Insider Trader examined the factions that a new tailor in Outland will need to buddy up to, including what recipes they had to offer, and how far you'd need to go.

Today, we will continue through the series with the following guide to faction recipes for alchemists in Outland. Here is the quick breakdown of what you will need to grind:
  1. Honored with Honor Hold or Thrallmar.
  2. Honored with the Violet Eye (Kara).
  3. Revered with Kurenai or Mag'har. *This one may not be worth it.
  4. Revered with Scryers. Aldor has nothing for alchemists.
  5. Exalted with the Cenarion Expedition.
  6. Exalted with Sporeggar.
  7. Exalted with Lower City.
  8. Exalted with Shattered Sun.
  9. Exalted with the Sha'tar.
  10. Exalted with the Keepers of Time.

2.4 leaves hunters low on mana

Since patch 2.4, hunters have been having some problems. Aside from the outrage over the fact that our traps are now announced, we seem to be having issues with mana.

On the forums, hunters are not seeing much love from the non-hunter crowd, but I suppose that is to be expected. It is important to note however, that our mana efficiency is an intended attribute of our class. We are useful, not solely, but arguably primarily, because we can provide sustainable, long-term DPS. No, we don't crit like mages. In a boss fight though, we can keep going after mages short out.

Why are hunters all of a sudden having issues with mana? There are a few theories floating around, but we have yet to be graced with a blue response. Take the jump to learn more about why this might be happening.

Insider Trader: Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble


If you're the type of player who finds cauldrons useful, then you probably already know about them – and if you have no idea what they're for, you probably have no use for them. But Insider Trader is the Martha Stewart of WoW Insider – we happen to think that any tool that helps other players take responsibility for their vitals is, as Martha would say, a Good Thing. So let's talk about the so-called pot o' pots.

Cauldrons are the alchemical, resistance-pot equivalent of a warlock's soulwell. The alchemist creates a bubbling cauldron that other raid members can click on to receive a major resistance potion from one of the various schools of magic – there are cauldrons for each type of magic except for Holy. Cauldrons can turn out 25 potions over a five-minute duration, a decided improvement over creating, carrying and handing out that many individual pots (and quite a bit cheaper than making even less than half the number of normal major protection pots).

Read more about cauldrons, as well as a handy tip about how to use multiple healthstones (yes, that's more than one at a time), after the jump.

Frost Resistance in Patch 1.11

Translations from the Chinese site show new craftable items available with Argent Dawn and Hydraxian Waterlords reputation - all featuring high frost resist.  This further confirms the rumor that upcoming dungeon Naxxramas will require frost resistances.  Another day, another resistance-based dungeon - I suppose I'll be adding a full frost resist set to sit with my fire, nature, and shadow resist sets.  Ah, but the days when I had bank space...!
